    "There are some tables not making the jump to Pinball FX3 due to business / licensing challenges. Zen has been developing licensed content for almost seven years now, and not all agreements have language that allows us to move from platform to platform. That said, there are a handful (literally) of licensed tables that we will have to, very sadly, leave behind"
